I Am Partly Back


I suppose it is time for me to post again. I am not back fulltime yet but I hope to be sooner rather than later.

My grandson has been home for about a month. He still needs aids like crutches and a wheelchair to get around. He is doing so well.

Everything is healing as to be expected.  He is strong and healthy (and cute as can be). He has a long way to go.

My son went from the hospital to a rehab center. He was supposed to have therapy there but it did not happen. I suppose part of the reason is the virus but not all of it.

One day he received a letter stating that two people in the center had tested positive for the virus. After a couple of weeks they decided to move all those with normal temperatures to a separate floor so he was moved.

Several weeks later my son was sick of being there. He checked with his doctors and lawyers to be sure that he would not hurt his benefits if he went home.

He heals fast like his father did. All his bones are mended. Some of his muscles and tendons have atrophied from inactivity. Therapy should fix that.

So my son is home. Nurses and therapists visit him there. He is happy to be home. He and his son are able to be together again.

Please all of you stay safe and healthy.

  2. Thank you so much, Emma for providing this update on your son and grandson. I was glad to learn they are both home and healing despite that awful accident. I also hope that you are doing well and have been lax in contacting blogger friends who had been dormant for a while. Of course, I c an understand that as some may be really depressed about self-isolation or not want to "talk" about being home. That's understandable. Others have been blogging about the situation a lot and that at times gets tiresome as all the newscasters are doing that, non-stop to the point of exhaustion as they too often do with any disaster. Yes, this is a very serious situation and we all need to do our part, use common sense to protect ourselves and others. So I am glad that you and your loved ones are safe and hope it continues that way. Yous posts were missed, my blogger friend.

  6. Dear Emma, I've been a dad for 50 years but haven't endured the sort of blow you are dealing with. Yes, there were hospitalizations and therapies involved in raising these treasures but nothing so sudden as what befell your family. You have my admiration and spiritual support. You are remarkable.

  17. I'm so glad for the good news. In looking again at the photo of the car, I'm struck by how far automobile safety has become. As bad your relatives' car looks, it was designed so that the car body would fold and buckle in order to maintain the integrity of the cars' interior (road design has come a long way too). As cool as vintage cars look, and as much as I miss the eccentricities of individual cars I owned (in many cases, it would have been a bit of a challenge for strangers to have even cranked some of the cars I owned), I would never wish to go back.
